Son of Thomas & Elizabeth (HERINGTON) ECCLES. His birth was recorded as 27 Mar 1849, and entered into the registry on 20 Apr 1849. His grave marker is incorrect. Birthplace was Farlington, Yorkshire, England, the ancestral home of his mother. James had 2 brothers and a sister, all born in Wass, Kilburn Parish, Birdforth wapentake, Yorkshire, England: Thomas Abbey Eccles, Hannah "Anna" Elizabeth (Eccles) Taber, and George Edmund William Eccles.

James was born in England and arrived in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1850. On 11 Jul 1877, he married Mary Elizabeth Penn in Clay County, Indiana. Mary bore 4 children in Indiana, but the first 3 children died very young. They are buried in Peavey Cemetery in Lewis Township, Clay County, Indiana. The fourth, Marion F. Eccles, survived for the trip to Oklahoma, but also died before his 6th birthday in 1888. James & Mary had 3 children who grew to adulthood and had families of their own: Lee Roy Eccles, Willard Edward Eccles, and George Richard Eccles.
